I eat here when visiting family in Washington. I must admit that I have only eaten breakfast here, so base my review on that.
It is a simple place with a ordinary menu, but the restaurant just works. One should not expect a Chart House in a small town like Washington, but one should expect good service and good food. The Washington Family Restaurant does that, and often with great food. The staff is always in a happy mood and the food comes out better than expected, especially some of the breakfast skillets that I've had.
Overall, this is a better than average, but not perfect, restaurant. If you are in town, I would definitely recommend it, especially for breakfast.
